A horse box has blown a tyre at the A12 Copdock roundabout on the outskirts of Ipswich, causing traffic delays in the area.

Police were called today at around 11.34am to the incident on the northbound A12 approaching Ipswich.

A spokeswoman for Suffolk police said that police were currently on the scene. “The vehicle has blown a tyre,” she said.

“We haven’t moved the vehicle out of the carriageway yet, we are waiting for a recovery vehicle.

“It is in lane two of the A12 just before Copdock roundabout near the crash barriers.”

She said the incident was causing traffic delays in the area and could do so for some time.

She urged that anyone approaching the roundabout should take care.
